For the most part I have absolutely loved being a Mini owner. I got the car with 39k i think and now I am at over 90k and haven't had any real problems out of it. I really wish that it was easier to work on. Im a 24 yr and am not made of money to go to the dealer every time I need to change the oil. I haven't had any tranny problems like all the other comments, but Im guessing that theirs is automatics.
I recommend Minis, great gas mileage, handles extremely well around curves, and suites my personality very well. My onboard computer system!
I wish that the air vents were in different places...it sure does keep my steering wheel cool or warm, but not me.
